Example Question #4148 : Algebra 1

What would be the midpoint of a line with endpoints and ?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the midpoint, we just need to find the mean of the x-coordinates, and then the mean of the y-coordinates. To find the mean, add the two numbers together and then divide by 2.

Our x-coordinates are -3 and 15.

Their mean is

.

Our y-coordinates are 6 and 4.

Their mean is

.

This gives us a new coordinate pair of .

Example Question #861 : Functions And Lines

The endpoints of a line segment are and . What is the midpoint?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

In order to find the midpoint, we have to find the mean of the x-coordinates of the endpoints, and then find the mean of the y-coordinates of the endpoints. To find the mean, add the two numbers together then divide by 2.

The x-coordinates are 0 and -20.

Their mean is

.

The y-coordinates are 0 and 4.

Their mean is

.

This gives us a new x-, y-coordinate pair of .
